Cornucopia, ex Sister Katingo

We have a member who is attempting to find a picture of an oil tanker, the 'Cornucopia', for an old seafaring friend who sailed on her in the 1970s and who does not have a computer.
I'm unable to find a copy online and wonder if a member has a photo of the ship that he/she can upload to the Gallery or EMail to me.
Or point to a picture on the web.
That would be much appreciated.
She was built at Bethlehem, San Francisco as the 'Sister Katingo' in 1958 and was later renamed 'Cornucopia'. Broken up in 2000.
Owners included Keystone Shipping and Union Oil.
Many thanks,
Bruce

Sister Katingo > Cornucopia

I worked at Northwest Marine Iron Works shipyard when the Sister Katingo was converted to the Cornucopia. They cut the engine room off the Sister Katingo and welded it to a new forebody. But it became an LNG tanker as I recall. That was in 1977-1978. I was a trainee in the marine electrical shop....seeing the Katingo cut in half and the stern rewelded onto a new forebody was something I'll never forget.

Cornucopia was a regular caller at Sacramento and Stockton with liquid ammonia used for fertilizer. I piloted her to both destinations on many occasions.
